After upgrading to Sonar 1.10.1 the behaviour of exclusions has changed regarding Surefire (JUnit) test results.
Expected: Excluding a package from static analysis does not affect Surefire (JUnit) test results. This worked fine (as expected) prior to Sonar version 1.10.
Actual with Sonar version 1.10.1: Exclusion from static analysis also suppresses Surefire (JUnit) test results. The logfile shows that the Surefire (JUnit) tests inside the excluded package(s) are executed, but the results are not displayed in the Sonar JUnit drilldown viewer.
